BenMar Farm is overjoyed to announce the birth of our stallion’s first sport horse foal! BenMar’s Bridon Belfrey, RID is the proud Papa of Briette, IDSH, a stunning liver chestnut filly. She is out of a bay maiden Anglo-Arab mare, Willow, owned by Jenna Ordway. This is Jenna’s first IDSH foal, who she says looks and moves very much like Belfrey.

Hawk went on that day to win Reserve Supreme Champion Youngstock, Best American Bred and Purebred in-hand Championships, and Best Get of Sire, plus Reserve Supreme Champion at the 2004 National Show!
